It’s a real worry when you travel abroad at Christmas that Santa wont be able to find you! Well… the secret is, SilverStar is one of Santa Clauses FAVORITE destinations and we’ve had a word with the man himself and made sure that he will be here on Christmas Eve! If you’ve got kids who have been exceptionally good this year he’ll even give them a present BEFORE he does his annual trip across the globe!
